Re: Is Samoa a Christian nation?
I am a Christian and I totally agree with everything that has been said by Orlando Huaman. If I were in Samoa I would come and learn from him.
Any organised religion (Christian included) is a brainwashing exercise from young age to adult-hood.
Yes you have been brainwashed from a young age. Try breaking away from your church and see what happens to your mind. I did break away and I was messed up internally.
I thought I was going to burn in hell. I thought my world was going to end. I thought I was going to be lost. None of these things happened. In fact I found freedom. Freedom is such a wonderful thing once you have experienced it. But there was a big hole left within my mind and soul that needed to be filled. I could not gain Peace of mind.
There were lots of questions in my mind that needed to be answered.
Questions like: Does God exist? How do I know? Is Jesus Christ real? Did He really come to Earth 2000 years ago? Is Jesus Christ the Son of God? Is Jesus Christ coming back to Earth? I searched the answers to all these personal questions while being free from organised religion.
So yes I had freedom but I did not have peace of mind. I then came across the works of Edgar Cayce (1877 to 1945) All the questions were answered and also more. I began to have a direct personal relationship with God and Jesus Christ. I did not need a middle-man (pastor/priest/etc)
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27
The Bible became my personal soul story. The Bible is about me and my soul journey until I achieve perfection like Jesus Christ did. The Bible is the story of my creation as a soul in the beginning in Genesis to my eventual death hear on Earth.
I am still on my soul journey on earth. I want to help all my Christian brothers and sisters understand what the Bible says.
Here is an example:
Yes, the Bible is about my soul journey but more importantly the Soul Journey of Jesus Christ on Earth.
Jesus was Adam the first “son of man” and “son of God.”
Jesus was Enoch. Genesis 5:18-24 which concludes, “And Enoch walked with God: and he was not, for God took him.”
Jesus was Melchizedek the “king of Salem” and “priest of the most high God” who shares bread and wine with Abraham in Genesis 14: 18-20.)
Jesus was Joseph (12 brothers/12disciples) There are many parallels between the life of Joseph and Jesus.
Jesus was Joshua, the warrior who led the Israelites into the Promised Land. Hebrews 4:8-10 identifies Jesus as a better Joshua
Jesus was Jeshua a high priest who helped organize the return from exile and the rebuilding of the temple (as recounted in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah) who also translated the books of the Bible.
Jesus was the man who attained complete “at-one-ment” and human-divine unity and therefore became “the Christ.” “Joshua”, “Jeshua”, and “Jesus” are really the same name. The name “Jesus” is a Latinization of the Aramaic “Jeshua” or “Yeshua” which is in turn taken from the Hebrew “Joshua.” So the name “Jesus” refers to many heroes in the Hebrew Bible.
The Christ-soul will walk the Earth again as the Messiah and usher in the “Throne of David” (i.e., the kingdom of heaven) on Earth as revealed in Revelation 11:15. The Second Coming of Christ means two things: an internal, psychic event within the individual seeker (see Book of Revelation), and the actual return of Jesus Christ.
I encourage every Christian brother and sister in Samoa to do some personal seeking. Remember what Jesus said “Seek and You shall find. Knock and the door will be opened to you.”
